Workplace apathy isn’t hard to spot: No enthusiasm. Excuses abound. Deadlines are missed. The apathetic employee’s motto is “not my job.”
Unfortunately, this environment comes standard at most offices.
The latest Gallup employee engagement survey shows just 31.5 percent of U.S. employees are engaged. Two-thirds of the workforce reported being “not engaged” or “actively disengaged.”
While it’s easy to blame employees for this, many businesses fail to realize that engagement is a two way street. Take this quiz to find out if your workplace is worth committing to.
